A wind speed and fluctuation simulator for characterizing the wind lidar correlation method


Aerosol distribution in the atmosphere is used as a wind-tracer by lidars since it is drifted by the wind and respond to its changes. Two methods are used: the correlation and the Doppler method. This first one is easier and cheaper to implement than the latter. It makes it competitive for retrieving wind speed profiles or estimating wind turbulence… (More)
